Larousse 2009
A few weeks before the back-to-school kerfuffle, the shelves of the CTN's and supermarkets are arrayed with the year's new products: Diddl satchels, Dora pencil boxes, Superman portfolios, Bob the Sponge pens,... Like clockwork worthy of Beaujolais Nouveau, the 2009 dictionaries have also appeared at pride of place on the displays. More discrete, but far more important!

This year, Larousse is playing its hand well. And what a hand! A true triptych dedicated to the language, its particularities and its culture. In its dictionaries establishment, Larousse this summer is inaugurating two new key exhibits: the Larousse of Common Nouns and the Larousse of Proper Nouns. A unique opportunity to renew the partner of your evening games or the faithful companion of your scholars in short trousers.

Belgian-French phrases, above all.

Listening to a language strengthened by its regional diversities, the Petit Larousse has once again been enriched by about a hundred words, meanings, phrases and expressions. Our hearts rejoice when new Belgian-French phrases appear: - déjeté, e adj. In disorder. Your office is a total mess. - grenailles n.f. pl. Wandering shot: gravel on a roadway. Be careful! wandering shot! - racrapoter (se) Fam. 1. To shrivel up. 2. To curl up. - roulage n.m. Road traffic. Traffic accident. Traffic police. They thus join the large family of the regionalisms included in the dictionary. As far as proper nouns are concerned, our Prime Minister (Yves Leterme) wins the publisher's jackpot. Collateral damage from "his" Marseillaise? We'll let you decide for yourselves.
